Remember Iwo Jima and honor veterans

Feb. 22

To the editor:

Please join the Canby-Aurora VFW 6057 Post and Auxiliary’s 19th annual Iwo Jima flag raising ceremony on Saturday, Feb. 22 at 10 a.m., at the Canby Adult Center, followed by a breakfast.

Our World War II veterans who fought and were support for the battle on Iwo Jima are quickly passing away and we do not want them to be forgotten.

So we remember each February the tremendous sacrifices they gave to this country.

Please invite a veteran to this emotional event and help our community to be forever grateful to this remarkable generation of veterans.

John Lance, commander

Lisa White, auxiliary president
